I had a question about ejbCreate(). The book,"Mastering EJB" by Ed Roman on Table 4.1 says that for a stateless session bean "You can define only have a single ejbCreate method with no parameters" Say If I have a stateless session bean for a credit card validation. All it does is returns a yes or a no for a validitiy of a credit card. I was thiking that this could be done by sending the credit card number, expiry date adn the name as parameters to the bean and having it return a yes or a no. Can somebody help me clear my confusion? PK
Prakash, You can do this by sending the credit card information to the business methods in you bean. The create method creates the bean instance and returns a reference, which you can use to call business methods. So I could have a method public boolean validate(cc number, exp date..), etc which does the job for you. This would be declared in the remote interface and implemented in the bean class. Does that help ? -Sri

Sri, THat does help. I was thinking that the stuff on the book could have been a mis-print. But now I am convinced..
